ARE YOU READY???
Registration is happening on Wednesday, November 1st (that's just 3 days away!). Some things to remember:
Registration opens on November 1st! Students, teachers, librarians--gather your friends and figure out which workshops and panels you want to attend. Don't dilly-dally, once the spots are gone, they're gone!
Did you miss the big news? Our 2018 Cavalcade of Authors West lineup was posted to our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages on September 21st! (It's a good idea to follow our socials because we break most of our news there first!)
Mark your calendars for May 12th, 2018--don't miss out on our awesome authors!
2017 Writing Contest Winners Published!
Be sure to visit our Writing Contest page to read the entries from our 2017 winning authors, Denise Gonzales from Lochburn Middle School and Alyssa Young from Lakes High School (Go Clover Park SD!). We are proud of these young authors, and can't wait to read their first published books! Congratulations, ladies!
The final details are in the works for NEXT SATURDAY! Yes, we are just days away from a once-in-a-lifetime experience at #COAWest17. All students who have preregistered have been assigned sessions and panels; any students who did not preregister for workshops will be assigned sessions at registration on the morning of the 6th. A logistics letter has been sent to all registered schools so that you know what to bring, what our schedule is, and what to expect of the day.
Some key reminders:
